[cheers and applause] got to get that off my chest. i feel a lot better. feel free to say that to the person next to you as well if you feel that way. now, all joking aside, we live in an upside down world where saying words like that bear attacks on the other side, and, yet, the other side can say toxic comments without repercussions or held to the same standards. a quick example is mark lamont hill. you may have seen the article, the 15 most overrated white people, columbus to reagan to shakespeare, and the only thing than being a white person speaking those words is being a black person who steps out of line. all you have to do is look at city sigh dash, and thank you, ann, for standing up for her value -- valiantly. we really appreciate that. it would be absurd if it was not so wrong. that's the truth. as for example rick douglass said liberty is purpose less if the seek to -- ann practices freedom of speech every single day, and i'll leave you with this. i think the most accurate comment about ann's curre

obama has apparently signed an order that will free up federal dollars for folks who are dealing here in this section of new york where i am, who are dealing with the aftermath of this storm that has now passed through. so a little bit of good news where we are, which is that it stopped raining. the winds are not as high as they were hours ago. not even in the last two hours when it was still pretty breezy. also the water is receding. this area where i'm standing right now on east houston street avenue "d" for the far lower east side of manhattan. it's actually that the water has receded a lot. a couple of downed trees but there's not very much damage behind me. but straight back there is fdr drive. that was completely flooded which meant all of this was flooded, as well. as every hour goes by this morning the water is receding more and more. we're hoping to be able to get a shot for you when the light comes up a little bit. there are cars down there that were submerged when the floodwater came in. we're going to get a chance to get down there a little bit later as it gets lighter out
that, public-private partnerships. something the obama administration is in talking about for a number of years. a small amount of seed money from the government that brings in a lot of private money sitting on the sidelines, that's looking for investments in things that pay longer-term. toll roads is a classic example. so we do far less than we could do an infrastructure as we don't have appropriate structures. you do see interesting things happening. i mean, new york is set up an infrastructure bank to do with the state level was not at the federal level. chicago, mayor emmanuel announced the launch of a $7 infrastructure project in chicago, again to bring private money sitting on the sidelines. so that's a very good example of what can be done. the u.s. is losing ground on a lot of key components of infrastructure and for understandable reasons. governments don't have an awful lot of money. so if you're waiting on the line on government appropriations in government borrowing for infrastructure investments, that is not the best way forward in the current environment. so that's a very
